If you are new to dahlia tubers, this is the one to try! This is a great variety of dahlia for beginners and is a kid-favorite due to its gorgeous fiery red color. This variety is our biggest bloom producer with strong stems and a robust structure, regardless of what weather the season brings. These flowers are ball-shaped, which makes them perfect for those who love symmetry. This listing is for a single dahlia tuber.
Eyes are the vegetative growing points of the tuber. The body of the tuber provides the dahlia with nutrition and energy to grow. Dahlia tubers are visually inspected for eyes before shipping—each tuber will have at least one visible eye. Eyes may sometimes break off in transit, but new growth will come from where the eye was previously.
Each order will arrive with instructions on growing your dahlia tubers. Dahlias prefer full sun, which means 6-8+ hours of sunlight per day. Hold off on watering your tuber until you see it sprout above ground. Each tuber needs approximately 2 square feet of growing space. Dahlias like well-draining soil, so don’t plant them in soil that is too wet. We recommend staking this variety of dahlia.
